The FLAJAX Club members and their FLAJILLs welcomed the Jacksonville community to their club house grand opening last weekend. Members, family and friends came out in full force to fellowship and reminisce with th 86 year old organization. For at least 10 years, the FLA JAX clubhouse had been in need of repairs and renovations. After much thought and consideration, the FLAJAX members proceeded to renovate the clubhouse and begin anew. The property located off Edgewood Avenue on Fernandina Street is now updated with new floors, bathroom upgrades for the FLAJILLs and a newly remolded kitchen for healthy cooking initiatives. The Clubhouse was packed to capacity as FLAJAX President James Andrew remarked, “this was a total team project. Each member came through with contracting experience and hands on assistance. We are proud of the clubhouse and plan to have our meetings and gatherings and welcoming new members in our new clubouse”. The FLAJAX Club was founded on October 16, 1930 on the principles of Integrity, Leadership and, Fidelity. The FLAJAX Club is the oldest and most respected social and civic club in the community. The FLAJAX Club continues to enjoy a position of prominence in the civic, social and cultural activities of African Americans in the community. Shown at the clubhouse are FLAJAX members: Troy Canady, Jean Downing, Warner Singleton, Edgar Mathis, Dr. Charles Simmons III, Henry Sellers, Delaney Williams, John Edwards, Samuel Allen, James Andrews, Robert Porter, George Marshall, Neil Frink and George Barnes.
